Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to enable the provision of free eye care services for less privileged and vulnerable vision impaired children in Nigeria.
It's all part of making a better world.
Implementing my policy vision would lead to significant reduction in child poverty in Nigeria. It would create a world in which less privileged and vulnerable vision impaired children have access to free eye care service, where no children is suffering from treatable eye condition or disease and where every children with visual impairment can reach and achieve their full potential…
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by vision impaired children in Nigeria, the parents of these children, health care workers, the health sector and the economy of Nigeria.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
90% reduction in the number of vision impaired children in Nigeria.
More than 50% significant improvement in the academic performance of vision impaired children in school.
More than 30% reduction in child poverty rate in Nigeria.
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
I will measure the success of my vision when:
1. Over 90% of vision impaired children have access to free eye glasses and drugs.
2. Over 70% of vision impaired children in need of eye surgery to see clearly have been provided free eye surgery.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
